The RCM Junior Department is operating a phased return to musical activity on campus this term in order to deliver the safest and highest-quality learning experience for all JD students. We are excited to be welcoming JD students and staff back to campus and the health and wellbeing of the whole RCM community is our top priority.
Following government guidance regarding social distancing and in order to keep all our students and staff safe, the capacity of RCM buildings has been reduced. We are therefore offering a blended learning programme with a mixture of digital and on-campus provision, which will gradually expand throughout the academic year.
We are maximising the amount of on-campus music making we can offer whilst keeping everyone safe. RCMJD parents should refer to the RCMJD Blended Learning Guide sent on 4 September for further information. Regular updates about our musical activities will be provided via our weekly e-shot, which will be sent via email every Thursday.
We continue to follow developments in government policy and advice from music industry professionals and we will ensure that all in person musical activities in the autumn term are planned with safety in mind.
Please note, in line with government guidelines for schools, no parents or visitors will be allowed on campus unless they have a pre-arranged appointment with the Head or Assistant Head of Junior Programmes or a member of the JD admin team. Currently, parents are not able to attend instrumental lessons.
